moderate republicans they are willing to vote for a tax rate increase which is exactly what president obama has asked for. but they won't do it unless there are significant spending cuts and the promise of entitlement reform on the table. democrats have really at this point been unwilling to go in that direction. they believe they made cuts a couple years ago that were significant, and the entitlement reform is something they're not really willing to negotiate on right now because they feel it would, you know, endanger seniors and the poor. so a lot of this really has to do with spending cuts. everybody's focused on the tax issue, but i believe really the key to compromise here is going to be watch what happens with the spending cuts. if they can get significant spending cuts and the promise of entitlement reform, that's when you'll see these negotiations really get going. jon: well, that seemed to be part of what john boehner was bringing forward, the plan b. his caucus was ready to go with the tax increases on, you know, high earners in this country. but they didn't seem to be getting eno
